Do you claim a timeshare as an asset?

Yes

suggested revision

In some ways, it is an asset. It can provide the owner a great location to relax and have fu during vacation week. However, it has a corresponding liability. The owner must pay the increasing maintenance fees.

In all ways the property, like your house or a car or your airplane or jewelry is an asset. And for the filing of bankruptcy, it is most certainly an asset. Yes the debt is a liability. and yes the debt may be secured to an asset, but it does not change that the asset is an asset, or even the gross value of that asset. Agreeably, the "net equity in the asset" may be small or even negative.

Nonethless, as bankruptcy process can use assets to satisfy debts and even, or especially, discharge the debt (liability) and use the asset to pay off others, that is how it should be reported.

And really, I cannot think of any other way, anyplace, that it would be different.

(Once again...your million dollar house is a million dollar asset. The loan on it of 2 million is a debt/liability. You may have no equity...you may owe more than it s worth. BUT, the house is worth that million, regardless of if it has a loan attached to it, or not. YOUR costs of ownership, maintenance and such, may make it a bad investment, and nothing worth owning, but it is still an asset. It is those other things, which are themselves liabilities, that make it less valuable to you.

Consider, if the timeshare has no loan secured by it, (the future maintenaince fees or possible appreciation is not really a consideration, and the debt was instead made as an unsecured and personal loan, your bankruptcy/insolvency would be the exact same. Hard to sell, but worth something.)

The current economic situation and the disadvantages brought about by owning a timeshare made this type of property more of a liability. Do not be fooled by those timeshare presentations that says it can be sold out or rent out easily.

Well, some owners are really well-off and look for luxurious ways of vacationing. A timeshare might be for them and in a way they treat such property as an asset to achieve their dream vacation. But for those average vacationers who might think that a timeshare can yield a return of investment by selling it later, then, I totally disagree with that.

Yes, it can be considered an asset since the term is you own a unit. In fact, you can also include your timeshare if you file for bankruptcy.

Why should a firm try to maximize profits rather than maximize production?

Presuming the firm is acting rationally maximising profits equates to maximising shareholder/stakeholder value. Maximising production is not always congruent with maximising profits especially where a) you are left with huge unsold inventories) or b) the marginal cost of production exceeds the marginal revenue from sales

Reasons of grivna UAH appreciation against dollar?

ukrainian banks appreciate the grivna purposefully. unlike the u.s. dollar, which is regulated in large by the state of the economy, appreciation or depreciation in different countries regulates differently than here in the u.s.. the heads of the ukrainian banks (of which are largely national bank) make money by the changes in the grivna. if they invest in say 100 usd at 5 grivna per dollar, they buy it with 500 grivna. if they then depreciate the grivna to 10 grivna per dollar, their investment is now worth 1000 grivna. without any other changes in the economy such as inflation of prices, they just made 500 grivna. Now banks do this on a much larger scale. if they buy 1 million usd for 5 million grivna, and the grivna depreciates to 10, they just made 5 million. The process works exactly the same way in reverse (such as the case of appreciation against the dollar). its just all a scam regulated by the filthy rich owners of the banks.

How do you get stock market index to a website?

It's not very clear from your question if you want to create a personalized stock index or you want information about the BSE Sensex and other stock indices on your website. If it's the latter, then lots of finance portals like moneycontrol.com, sharekhan.com, etc. have that info, so I would think it shouldn't be too difficult to integrate it into your website. You may need to buy some software application for this purpose. This sort of information has become easily available over the Internet as have online trading services that are offered by many brokerage portals and firms.

How might merchants manipulate the price of commodities?

Merchants try to manipulate the price of commodities by controlling the amount available for sale. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. When Brazil grew most of the world's coffee, they could control the price by only selling it when it would fetch a certain price. At that point, a number of nations in Africa started growing coffee. At that point, the price of coffee collapsed. It is possible to manipulate commodity prices in the short run but not in the long run.

In a short time, the large sugar cane fields of Florida could be harvested and turned into rice paddies.

Besides controlling the amount they are willing to sell, price manipulation can be the result of direct collusion between merchants: that is, regardless of how much is being sold, merchants could agree that they would never charge less than some price $X for the good. This type of collusion is usually done through cartels or trusts, but, particularly in the medieval times, was a practice of guilds and mercantile associations. It also can happen today when a market has a very few merchants (2-4 at most), and they come to an "unofficial" agreement around pricing.

Additionally, merchants and/or nations can manipulate or control prices by tariffs and import quotas. From the times of mercantilism, colonial powers used this system to embellish the economies of the home nation at the expense of the colonies they controlled. Rarely did the Power be in the business of growing cotton for example, however, the merchants that were were part of this self contained profit system with the control of prices in collusion with their governments.

Merchants can also control prices and commodities by means of monopolies that are created by governments. Reference to this is mentioned earlier by the first contributor.

What is the fastest way to gain wealth legally?

Investing on the stock market can be good for that. generally putting money in the bank is a good idea too. at the moment investing is possibly the best idea. however dont invest in anything you dont understand, and generally make sure you buy when the prices are low.

The first step toward gaining wealth through investment is improving your own personal investment knowledge. This can be achieved through (e.g.

authors: Peter Lynch, William O'Neil; websites: investopedia, Motley Fools).

Investing in stocks can be fraught with dangerous risks.

Some valuable advice:

Do NOT invest on tips very important

Especially important Do not invest on so-called insider information -- almost all the

time it is false and if it is right, trading on inside information is a felony, punishable with fines and federal jail time.

Articles found in investment & business magazines, most often presents information

that is old, sometimes as much as 3 months. These stocks have most likely already

done what was expected, if at all.

Likewise, be careful of stocks mentioned on TV, you have no way of determining

when the research behind the recommendation, if any, was done.

Putting money in the bank is safe (if FDIC insured) but when you take inflation

into consideration, you most likely are losing money. 1 to 2% interest paid

minus rate of inflation ( 2 to 3% ) equals loss (unchanged $) or at best break-even.

Follow the advice of a favorite and timeless Wall Street mantra:

Caveat Emptor --- Buyer Beware

You must do your homework to acquire the proper skills & tools.

Investing in the stock market is a fast and also less risky way of gaining wealth. A good broker and a guidance of which stocks to buy is necessary though. In that case I can help you with my blog mystocks.org/. You can find out which stock to buy or sell and I update my reports as frequently as possible.
